Hainan at Home and Jeelvy

Chinatrix calling Whites “foreigners”…in America.

Read here. Emphasis added.

Thus, when, a week into the crisis, it looked as thought the U.S. was going to stand firm, I got into a spot of bother with my suggestion that perhaps George W. Bush should counter the Chinese demand for an apology by demanding an apology from them. After all, I pointed out, the U.S. plane was over international waters, and the F-8s must have been flying awfully close for the accident to have happened — close enough to fairly be accused of harrassment, whatever the precise details of the mishap.

Rosie: “Nonsense! China give an apology to America? You’re mad! What was that plane doing so close to our shore? Spying, that’s what! You foreigners think you can just do as you like in China! …” In less time than it takes to hit the MAYDAY button on an EP-3 control panel, we were into the Opium War and the suppression of the Boxers. Dialectical Materialism may have passed undigested through Rosie’s alimentary canal, but the xenophobic stuff went direct into her bloodstream.

Keep in mind that “Rosie” was living in the USA at this time (as she does now).  If I am not mistaken, “Rosie” is now a “American citizen” who votes. “You foreigners,” indeed.  Thanks, Derbyshire.

It’s OK. In the style of Mao Tse-tung, who was fond of comparing crises in the Party with earthquakes, this is no worse than a 4 on the Richter scale. It certainly doesn’t compare with last August 6, a Sunday, and a day that will live in infamy, when I woke early with the horrible realization that it was our wedding anniversary, crept out of the house, spent a frantic hour trying to find a card store that was open, and got home … too late. Harmony will re-assert itself. I just have to follow the President’s example: be patient, and do some measured grovelling.

The last five words = the role of Whites in the “Arctic Alliance.”  And also a summary of HBD.

The ethnocentrism on display here is also reflected in all the spying scandals involving ethnic Chinese living in America spying for their ethnic homeland, reflected in the mind-numbing knee-jerk hatred of Whites and of Western civilization, and is also reflected in networks of ethnic nepotism, including in the professions. Keep on groveling – in a “measured” fashion of course – Whitey.  Kneel down in abject subservience before the Altar of Asia. Hail HBD!


No Nut Jeelvy!


Pathetic. Jeelvy:

I’m pretty sure you’ve heard by now of No Nut November, which is a challenge for all who take it upon them not to commit the sin of Onan – i.e., masturbation – in the month of November. As it happens, most of the people taking the challenge are young men, most of them white and, if not quite on the Right, then at the very least not allergic to our ideas. Of note is also that No Nut November has been countersignaled by the smut merchants at VICE, which I consider to be a glowing endorsement.

I am glad to tell you, my friends, that I have passed this challenge. My mind is at ease, my soul feels clean and pure again, and my body is a weapon fit for the Archangel Michael. I could also offer you details concerning some of the other psychosomatic effects, but as Counter-Currents is a highbrow webzine, the traditional Slavo-Mediterranean braggadocio about sexual prowess and genital size should be used sparingly.

I’m no stranger to addictive behavior, or to the cessation of addictive behavior. In my life, I’ve been seriously addicted to three substances: risperidon, nicotine, and sugar. Two of those I’ve completely dropped, while sugar I’ve learned to consume in moderation. I’ve also had my fair share of problems with video game addiction…

Isn’t this the guy with the fist-sized-breasted wife?  So…what?  He was masturbating regularly before “No Nut November?”  Yes sir, that “traditional Slavo-Mediterranean braggadocio about sexual prowess” really fits when a married Millennial finds it necessary to pull a “no nut.”  Counter-Currents is really hitting new heights of “highbrow” erudition with the new crop of writers Johnson has pulled out of the Alt Right sewer.

As someone who used to write for both sites, I have to say that there are some remarkable parallels between Majority Rights and Counter-Currents. In my opinion, one major reason why Majority Rights declined is because of Guessedworker’s inability or unwillingness to exercise quality control over his site, to realize what is or is not appropriate for the site. While Greg Johnson, unlike Guessworker, actually moderates the comments section of his site (too much in my opinion), apparently he is not exercising quality control over the actual contributors to his site (Jeelvy being a perfect example). And thus, the sad decline continues,  Remarkably, the “movement’s” marching morons continue sending in the “D’Nations.”

Happy Thanksgiving 2019

Odds and ends.

On this day, let us all be thankful that the Alt Right collapsed before it became even more intertwined with racial nationalism and dragged racial activism down into the abyss.

I would like to point out with respect to some of my recent harsh criticism of certain “movement” figures that it is not personal and does not deny that those people have made important contributions to the cause.

Take Hood for example. Much of what he writes I agree with, but the outrageous gaslighting about the history of the Alt Right and its support by those on the Far Right, and also about support for Trump, is unacceptable. His comment of “we just need money” is also unacceptable, as Der Movement has frittered away millions of dollars with nothing to show for it except for endless humiliating failure.  MacDonald had done good work, but the current HBD-Nordicist direction of his work delves into pseudoscience (for an example, see below).

I will continue to speak truth to power.  The power in this case being Der Movement, Inc.

Laugh at this prime Type Isim.

In Donaldson’s mythos, which is equal parts Joseph Campbell and J. R. R. Tolkien, ancient races of elves, dwarves, and giants represent elemental aspects of our world and our souls. Storm giants, for example, represent what is violent and destructive in men and also the great winters that caused the last Ice Age. Before the advent of men, these races often did battle, with the storm giants routing the elves in North America and sending their great prince, Boden, fleeing to Europe. There, the elves managed to defeat the storm giants (an allegory for the retreating glaciers after the Ice Age) with the help of humans.

My elf, my elf, my storm giant for an elf!  I don’t know – those silver age Tales of Asgard comic tales by Jews Lee and Kirby seem to me better than Donaldson

Next for Ash Donaldson – writing a sequel to The Iron Dream.

A Race for the North imparts above all else the great kinship shared by the white European peoples.

By “white European peoples” that is, of course, everyone who derives from the north of Vienna and the west of Berlin.  That may be a bit too inclusive though – how about from the north of Calais and the west of Hamburg?  Dat right!

Zman:

At some point, I decided to watch until I saw an ad featuring anything resembling normal people doing normal things. I gave up after about thirty minutes. If a space alien tried to understand America based on television, its conclusion would be that we are ruled by frizzy-haired mulatto lesbians and homosexuals.

What about Spencer’s octoroons?

With respect to the HBD-Nordicists, see this.  Emphasis added.

And in Sweden, public shaming and ostracism — punishments typical of a feminized society — are very powerful.

Sweden a shame culture? I thought that all of those high trust northern hunter gatherer Inner Hajnal peoples were individualistic “guilt cultures” and the collectivist “shame cultures” were what one would expect from two foot tall greasy Med swarthoids?

See this. Emphasis added.

In cultures that are more individualistic, one’s primary responsibility is to oneself. People make their own important life decisions (e.g., what kind of work to do and whom to marry), and have to live with the consequences of their choices. Thus, it is argued, guilt is a key motivator. (I don’t do something wrong because doing it would make me feel bad.)

In cultures that are more collectivist, one’s primary responsibility is to others—one’s family, tribe, religion or other social entity. Important others in their group make key life decisions for the individual (e.g., what kind of work to do and whom to marry) because they have the requisite knowledge and power, and one’s primary responsibility is to the group and to them because of their elevated position within it. Thus, it is argued, shame is a key motivator.

Back to Amren, emphasis added:

Swedes practiced collectivism long before the Social Democrats came to power in the 1930s…

Swedish collectivism?  Say it ain’t so!  What happened to the individualism of the high trust northern hunter gatherers?  The edifice of HBD-Nordicism continues to crumble.  I suppose they’ll engage in hand-waving spin to “explain” that Swedish collectivist shame culture is due to “egalitarian societal consensus.”  This demonstrates why HBD is not science, but is pseudoscience. From the perspective of the HBDers, their dogma is not falsifiable. Whatever theories and hypotheses the HBDers come up with, if evidence is shown to falsify those theories and hypotheses, the HBDers just create “spin” or lie or create bizarre misinterpretations in order to evade the fact that the falsification occurred.  They never admit to being wrong. If people refuse to accept that their hypotheses have been falsified, they are not real scientists. That is pseudoscience.

Listen to this. It is interesting that Taylor makes a distinction between “White countries” and Jews and Israel. I have no problem with that, of course, but I find it surprising.  


Taylor’s comments on racial differences in serum testosterone is based on what? HBD nonsense?  It doesn’t seem to be based on actual scientific evidence.  Quite the opposite.  See this as well.  There may be other issues involved, such as levels of androgen receptors and the gene expression response to hormones, etc., but that was not what was stated in the interview – the comments there were specifically about serum testosterone levels.

Wrong, wrong, they’re always wrong.

Do HBDers ever admit to being wrong?  Or is it more non-falsifiable (from their perspective) HBDism?  Overt pseudoscience.


I cannot stress enough how important it is to get these facts right. Making obvious errors such as this – obvious because a few seconds of online searching can find the current scientific consensus – gives the Left ammunition to smear all racial science as “pseudoscience.”  Authentic racial science is not pseudoscience, only HBD is. Unfortunately in Der Movement, the two are intimately linked, with the latter trashing the reputation of the former.


More of the same outrageous lie.

The single greatest – but largely unmentioned and unstudied – ethnic conflict in America is that between Yankees and Jews.

The truth, emphasis added:

In part, Yankee concern for black rights was genuinely inspired by Protestant moral fervour, but it was also influenced by the same strategic principle which underlay the southern-Catholic alliance: “the enemy of my enemy is my friend.” Indeed, other than their opposition to white southerners, white Massachusetts Unitarians and black Mississippi Baptists have almost nothing in common.

The history of US politics is little more than the history of these two coalitions: the southern-Catholic alliance and the Yankee-black alliance.

But the civil rights movement united Jews with blacks and their traditional allies, greater New England Protestants and Germanic Americans, against white southerners and northern white Catholics. Today, Jews are the most loyal white ethnic group in the northern coalition, which nowadays goes by the name of the Democrats.

The Yankee-Jew-Negro/Colored Alliance. That’s the truth – not Counter-Currents gaslighting lies.


Lie, lie, they always lie.


No, don’t spend money on Christmas!  Send in those “D’Nations” to Counter-Currents instead.  Remember, those who give live in the Golden Age today!

And if you give to VDARE you’ll live in The Happy Penguin Age today!


Why imagine?  You people were supporting him for years.  MAGA!  Pepe!  Kek!  Hail Trump!

Valhalla Awaits

And other odds and ends.

However, my theory is based on the proposal that Western uniqueness derives ultimately from unique ancestral environments in northwestern Europe, with emphasis on a north-south genetic cline in the relative genetic contributions of northern hunter gatherers, Indo-Europeans, and Early Farmers from the Middle East.

So, essentially, the “West” is “northwestern Europe.” The interesting thing is how the reality of Der Movement is converging on my parody of it. Long time readers of EGI Notes are aware of my description of Der Movement as believing that Europe is only that which is to the north of Vienna and the West of Berlin, and now, essentially, the HBD-Nordicists are promoting “theories” that essentially say in actuality (substituting “the West” for “Europe”) what I have been writing in mocking ridicule. Basically, parodying Der Movement is becoming ever more difficult, because “movement” reality converges upon, and then surpasses, what one says in sarcasm.

The aforementioned “theory” works only if you believe that areas of Europe outside of the northwest, including areas enriched in Neolithic farmer ancestry, are not part of the West, and that the peoples deriving from those areas are not genetically constituted for traits defining “Westerness.”  .

I don’t know of any serious scholar of the West (*) who believes that.  And Yockey, whose knowledge and understanding of Western history and culture dwarfs that of various “movement” “rock stars” certainly didn’t believe it.

This is just warmed over Kempism, “just so” stories promoting intra-European division and doing nothing but supporting my contention that so-called “White ethnics” have no place in Der Movement, Inc. and instead should look to the formation of a New Movement based on different principles. 

But I suppose that after the grand failure of the Alt Right – the Alt Right being supported by all the august “movement” personages at the same time I was presciently denouncing it – squandering the world historical opportunity of 2016, there is an impetus to devise new intellectual defenses of the “movement’s” ethnic affirmative action program. Only Pure Genetic Westerners need apply!  Spencer and Johnson to the vanguard, oh glorious leaders, grant us final victory!  Valhalla awaits!

The ultimate outcome of HBD – enslaving Whites thus to inscrutable Chinamen..

The Arctic Alliance marches on.

For the benefit of new readers, I want to once again clarify my position on HBD. When I write that HBD is a political movement aimed at subjugating Whites to Jews and Asians, I do NOT mean that all, or most, or even many, HBDers actually have that as their explicit agenda.  I do NOT mean that most HBDers cackle with delight as they plan the downfall of the White race, and I do NOT mean that masses of HBDers get together to plan the subjugation of Whites. Most White HBDers are no doubt sincere in their beliefs; they are useful idiots being manipulated by the relatively small number of HBDers who do actually have an anti-White agenda of replacing kinship-based racialism with aracial cognitive elitism, setting up a racial hierarchy with Jews and Asians on top, and promoting Jeursasian mongrelization.  


Thus, following the tenets of HBD to their logical conclusions will inexorably lead to the aforementioned subjugation of Whites to Jews and Asians, even though most (White) HBDers would deny that they desire such an outcome and would scoff at the possibility. However, the wire-pullers behind the scenes know very well how to make the HBD poison more palatable to the dupes, how to add sugar to the poison to make it go down more effectively. If HBD rhetoric was just Jewish and Asian supremacism, it would not have such a following.  But they add to the mix obvious truths about Negroes that add credibility to the dogma, and then they titillate the more sweaty of the ethnic fetishists by putting Afrowops at the bottom of the racial hierarchy, and by asserting that while Med swarthoids are cringing stupid subhumans, Nords are really smart – albeit not as smart as Jews and Asians. And Nords, and only Nords, are the real Westerners! Just ignore the leering Levantines and grinning Orientals behind the curtain. Move on, move on, there’s nothing to see there!  And the useful idiots eat it all up.  With gusto.


Do not misunderstand me. I am not denying important differences between Europeans, and I have discussed such differences here, including cognitive and behavioral differences – and some of those differences may be linked to national variation in culture and achievement. Where I differ is the idea that a particular set of traits associated with one subsection of Europeans is what defines “the West.”  Instead, I believe “the West” is best defined as an emergent property of the traits and national histories of all the types of (Western) Europeans, North and South, together. The complexity and richness of the West and its civilization is, I believe, also due the synergy of these various traits and histories. All of these components are important and cannot be isolated; the West is not just a derivation of one set of the European peoples. The fact that the “theory” in question is merely a variation of the same Guntherite Kempism we’ve all seen before suggests that it is, ultimately, an intellectual defense for the same old tired “movement” dogma.


Further, the idea that varying percentages of the same types of ancestral stocks can be so starkly genetically deterministic so as to allow for a sharp line to be drawn with respect to behavioral-cultural traits is an extreme stretch. If you are willing to go that far, then you would have to consider all of the implications. Is smug, self-righteous, destructive sick SJWism also so biologically deterministic, with such sharp territorial delineations?  Is hyper-collectivist conformism of belief in that SJWism equally so genetically and biologically deterministic?


And, I must say, accusations of “ethnic hurt feelings” are transparent projection. Long time readers of EGI Notes have read some extremely harsh criticisms here of swarthoids and other “White ethnics,” up to and including calling for a genetic culling of the worst 10-20% of the population (that could be done via sterilization instead of other measures). This blog has also praised the English and Germans as being the top of the European crop in terms of cultural, technical, scientific, humanistic intellectual, etc. achievements over the last few centuries; in addition, I’ve always been extremely impressed by the per capita technical achievements of the Scots. Durocher was alerted to North vs. South European differences in brain structure from this blog. I write what I perceive as the truth about any and all groups, regardless of “ethnic feelings” – hurt or otherwise.  In contrast, when is the last time you read or heard any of the Nord-fetishists say anything critical about Northwest Europeans – other than to assert that they are just too noble and altruistic and disinterested for their own good, “criticism” that is actually thinly veiled praise?  And those guys certainly have nothing good to say, ever, about swarthoids or hunkies. They are the ones whose “ethnic feelings” preclude them from ever legitimately criticizing their own group or praising other types of Europeans. Pot, meet kettle.

Speaking of HBD – I don’t know, maybe this reflects neurotic behavior?  Or just being a juvenile jackass?  Actually I don’t mind HBDers acting the buffoon.  It fits.  Like a glove.

Watch this.   That is the future of America.  And if you think that’s just an isolated case, you are in complete delusional denial. That’s the norm in American academia today, not the exception. Enjoy! And while the guy who made the video may be a milquetoast civic nationalist type, we should thank him for bringing this to our attention, and speaking out in class against the madness.


By the way, I just noticed that Greg Johnson describes himself thus:

My Facebook account has been terminated because I am a white advocate.

Not White nationalist, but “white advocate.” The ethnonationalist-HBD-Nordicist alliance continues to take shape.  “White advocate”- please.

More HBD Follies

And other news.

First – a secret video of a high-level Alt Right meeting is revealed!

I typically ignore Dutton, but this comically self-unaware video deserves a few comments.  Everything Dutton says here can apply to him as well; is one reason Dutton is offended by criticisms of his past videos (hysterically calling it “hate mail”) his low self-esteem?  Borderline personality disorder?  Dutton’s underlying objective here is a Frankfurt School-like pathologization of dissenting opinions.

The classic example of his pathologization of dissent here is the comments about Irish IQ. Dutton takes a page from Durocher and assumes that if members of a population group argue against HBD lies about that group, then this is due to “wounded self-esteem.” God forbid that there may be legitimate criticisms of HBD!  Dutton goes further than Durocher. The latter merely engages in ad hominem to accuse critics of his racial theories as being motivated by “ethnic hurt feelings.”  The former, Dutton, pathologizes those alleged “hurt feelings.” You see, the “hurt feelings” are the result of being easily offended because of “borderline personality disorder.”  Disagree with Dutton? You need therapy!  Perhaps you should be sent to a Soviet-style political-psychiatric clinic, you neurotic (*). How Dutton (and Durocher) is different from the Left in pathologizing criticism is not immediately apparent.

Let’s consider Lynn’s “work” on Irish IQ.  Lynn took two disparate data sets of Irish IQ – one test given to Irish children and another to Irish adults, with the findings showing a two thirds of a SD (!) difference in IQ between those two groups – and then averaged the data!  Then, since the results of this averaging gave an “estimated IQ” that fit in well with Lynn’s GDP-IQ hypothesis, that “estimated IQ” was considered reasonable – very reasonable, indeed! – by Lynn and his acolytes.

Now, typical “movement” “activists,” who know nothing about science, may think all of that is all good and great, but to any genuine scientist, it is abhorrent. If you want to average data points, then they have to be from true biological replicates, not data derived from two different experimental approaches given to different sample populations (e.g.,children and adults).  And then to use that completely wrong data “estimate” to legitimize a pre-conceived hypothesis is totally outrageous, is totally self-serving, totally inconsistent to how science is done. Notice that no attempt was made to determine why the two IQ data points were so different; as long as the desired result was obtained, it’s all good to the Lynnites. How would Lynn “estimate” group running speed – average times of potato sack races by kindergarteners with sprinting times of Olympic athletes?

And if someone claims that such laughable approaches are not atypical for “the social sciences” then all that does is underscore that “social science” is an oxymoron.

HBD is not science; it is pseudoscience used in the service of politics.  And if an Irishman objects to these “estimates,” that is completely justified.  I’m not Irish, by the way, and do not have a “dog in the fight” on this matter.  And, by the way, even if it is true that the Irish have the IQ level that Lynn and Dutton claim, why does Der Movement obsess over it so much?  Insofar as I know, the Irish do not receive affirmative action in the USA (or anywhere else), they do not have deficiencies in levels of accomplishment in America and do not claim that any perceived deficiencies are the result of “systemic racism”- unlike Negroes, there is no strong rationale for this focus on their IQ, other than to indulge “movement” obsessions or to attempt to legitimize Lynn’s IQ-GDP correlations.

On the other hand, when it comes to enhancing the idea of a “high-high Chinese IQ” these guys use data that are very likely not representative of the Chinese population – but, hey, as long as it makes the Chinese seem like our intellectual superiors, it’s all good.  

But all of the above is merely a manifestation of “borderline personality disorder.” 

*If Dutton thinks that sort of speech reflects neuroticism, then why doesn’t he do an analysis of Spencer’s post-Unite the Right tirade?  Neurotic? Or how about Johnson banning people from his site for the slightest dissent. Easily offended?

More to the point, how does Dutton believe he comes across in his videos?  If anyone is behaving in a neurotic and histrionic manner, it is Dutton himself.  He reminds me of Strom’s first wife in that old Revilo Oliver memorial service video.  Those of you who have seen that know of what I write.  I am also amused about how Dutton uses an anecdotal incident with an ex-friend to illustrate his point (quantitative science!) – even more amusing, the retelling of the incident is essentially recalling how this ex-friend offended Dutton.  The lack of self-awareness is stunning – no neurotic cognitive dissonance, no siree!

Milady in the news.  It’s good to see that the female is displaying accomplishment in those fields of activity for which she is so uniquely suited.

Amren worries about their key constituency – Asians.  Asians support “meritocracy,” eh?  Putting aside groups such as “Asians for Affirmative Action,” Asian network of ethnic nepotism are hardly consistent with “meritocracy.” But, hey, it’s the Holy Oriental, so let us all grovel before the Altar of Asia.

Is Trump pushing Facebook to increase censorship of Trump supporters?

More Chinese Spying

That Arctic Alliance in action again.

Read this.  Emphasis added:

The FBI in conjunction with the National Institute of Health is investigating the theft of U.S. biomedical research by scientists with links to China, according to the New York Times.

71 institutions, including some of the top medical research facilities in the U.S., are looking into 180 individual cases of possible intellectual property theftAlmost all of the individuals under investigation are of Chinese descent, some of them naturalized American citizens.

So far, 24 of those cases have been referred to the NIH inspector general with evidence of criminal activity.

“It seems to be hitting every discipline in biomedical research,” said Dr. Michael Lauer, deputy director for extramural research at the N.I.H.

Some of those under investigation have obtained Chinese patents for work owned by U.S. institutions and funded by the U.S. government, while others are suspected of duplicating U.S. research in secret laboratories in China. Redacted emails provided to the Times showed researchers apparently ferrying research items to China from the U.S.

“I should be able to bring the whole sets of primers to you (if I can figure out how to get a dozen tubes of frozen DNA onto an airplane),” read one email, referring to medical testing materials.

In January of this year, the U.S. Justice Department charged Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei with intellectual property theft and fraud.

Huawei poses a “dual threat to both our economic and national security, and the magnitude of these charges makes clear just how seriously the FBI takes this threat,” FBI Director Christopher Wray said at a press conference announcing the charges.

Copy, copy, copy, steal,steal, steal.  And yet the yellow supremacists tell us that these inscrutable Orientals are our  natural high IQ lords and masters.  Strange, isn’t it?

Political PopGen

And other news.

More mendacity.  I like how they are trying to surprise us with “you see, the Ancient World was really diverse” (shilling for modern mass alien immigration), while the fact that Rome itself (the city and immediately surrounding regions, specifically) became a cosmopolitan city has always been well known. In fact, if I recall correctly, some of the early work from the Cavalli-Sforza lab identified Rome and Naples (and areas immediately surrounding) as being somewhat genetically different from the rest of Italy, with the suggestion that it was because of the cosmopolitan aspects of these large cities throughout history. What about Alexandria?  It has always been known that it had a variety of ethnic groups.  What about the metics of Athens? Again, it was ALWAYS known that these large cities of ancient big states/empires, civilizational units, etc. were not purely homogeneous.  Why lie?  Why set up a strawman so you can knock it down with breathless accounts of the “surprising diversity?”  If for what other reason than to convince Whites to open their borders to the other today, and to cheerfully accept their demographic displacement and replacement?

Again, it depends what you mean by “Rome.”  If by that you mean the city itself, I don’t know of anyone who ever claimed the city did not attract migrants and take slaves. However, if by “Rome” you mean the entire Empire, including the mass of the area of current-day Italy, that’s a different story. Migrants (non-European) were not settling, in any substantial number,  in “backwaters.” There were slaves working farms, but those were hardly settled people who were reproducing (and were unlikely to have been spindly, flabby easterners in any case).

The city of Rome – no surprise. The entirety of “Rome” is not, obviously, going to reflect the same “diversity.”  By the way, population changes in Rome thousands of years ago do not obligate Italy – or any other nation – to accept immigrants today.  And, also, Ancient Rome itself was under no obligation to accept newcomers from its empire. They stupidly had slaves, yes, but as regards voluntary migrants – why accept them?  Just because you rule over various peoples does not obligate you to accept them as migrants. Even when universal citizenship was granted, it could have been enjoyed in place. There was no need or obligation to accept any influx into the city of Rome itself.

This is amusing though:

Then, starting about 1,700 years ago, the empire entered a phase of gradual dissolution. The Roman empire split in two halves and the capital moved to Constantinople. Around this time, the inhabitants of Rome changed their trading habits — and the new trade routes seem to have brought a fresh influx of ancestry into the region, Pritchard says. “People aren’t just trading with the north and the west, but their population is being replaced by new people coming in from those places.”

Race replacement!  But alas for “movement” narratives, the “race replacement” coinciding with “a phase of gradual dissolution”- the decline and fall – was coming from “the north and west.”

Der Movement, Der Movement, Der Movement marches on.

Get this, from that same article; Pritchard describing the data:

…a pleasant surprise…

Pleasant?  

Value judgments about scientific data? That crosses the line separating science from politics. I’ve always said that population genetics is a highly politicized field and this article is yet more evidence. These guys can’t just report their results. They need to “interpret” the data to the great unwashed – pontificating about the wonderfully surprising “diversity” of ancient cities.  Population shifts and replacements – pleasant.  And of course Pritchard is not alone. Ever notice that papers stressing the Middle Eastern ancestry of Ashkenazi Jews, and the consequent asserted continuity of modern Jews to the Levant, tend to come from Israel? Papers that stress continuity between ancient and modern Greeks tend to have Greek authors?  Papers that stress differences between Northern vs. Southern Italy tend to have Northern Italian authors? Papers that stress admixture and population shifts are typically about Europe?  That Chinese population geneticists are not going out of their way to interpret data to delegitimize the Han Chinese ethnography of their nation?  Coincidence?

I’m not saying the data are false and/or fabricated. Instead, similarly to what I have written about ancestry testing companies, the types of samples used and the types of analyses performed can determine the direction of the findings. Choices of parental populations, choices of analytical methods, underlying assumptions, etc. can create marked differences in the data output.  Further, how these people choose to interpret the findings can be highly subjective.

Never mind that all these guys are allergic to genetic kinship assays.

In any case, how about this for an interpretation – the city of Rome was “diverse” and the Roman Empire collapsed, a “pleasant” correlation there.

Hey, here’s your “alpha” Supreme Court Justice, Alt Right retards. Maybe we can have more analysis from Roissy of Trump and Kavanaugh shaking hands or how each one stands up straight (or in the case of “big paunch” Trump, does not).  

This is a good Strom piece, but if he believes all of this, why doesn’t he openly and explicitly denounce the Jewish-Asian HBD cult?

Let’s rewrite some of it.

….what Sir John Harington said about treason in the 17th century. Harington was wondering why one hears so little about treason; he asked Why does treason not prosper? It must not be prospering, since we never hear about it — right? Wrong. Harington said: “Treason doth never prosper: what’s the reason? For if it prosper, none dare call it treason.”

Similarly, today, few dare call into question the promotion of open borders, racial mixing, mass immigration, and slavish support for Israel and all things anti-White by the supposed “American” media — and few dare mention the real ethnic loyalties and background of the billionaire media elite — because to do so would bring smears, economic repercussions, legal persecution and sometimes even physical violence down on the truth-teller.

….what Sir John Harington said about treason in the 17th century. Harington was wondering why one hears so little about treason; he asked Why does treason not prosper? It must not be prospering, since we never hear about it — right? Wrong. Harington said: “Treason doth never prosper: what’s the reason? For if it prosper, none dare call it treason.”

Similarly, today, few dare call into question the promotion of slavish worship of “high Jewish and Asian IQ,” aracial cognitive elitism, intra-European division, “race realist” lies and fairy tales, Jeurasian mongrelization, outrageously transparent pseudoscience, and all things anti-White by the supposed “movement” HBD faction— and few dare mention the real ethnic loyalties and background of the HBD elite — because to do so would bring smears, “movement” repercussions, and labels of “crazy and bitter” on the truth-teller.

If you tune in and see some Republican or Democrat talking head promoting another war or promoting more immigration or pretending he opposes more immigration on the television, and you switch it off immediately and more importantly forever, that doesn’t make the traitors stop existing. But it does give you a chance to perceive the world primarily with your own eyes and ears, and to draw your own conclusions instead of having them spoon-fed to you.

If you go online and see some HBDer talking head promoting intra-European division or promoting Jew-Asian worship or pretending he opposes more Asian immigration, and you switch it off immediately and more importantly forever, that doesn’t make the traitors stop existing. But it does give you a chance to perceive the world primarily with your own eyes and ears, and to draw your own conclusions instead of having them spoon-fed to you.

See how easy it is, Kevin?

I’m Shocked, Shocked I Say

Against Davide Piffer, and against the HBD scam.

I’m no fan of “RationalWiki” – a snide anti-White leftist site – but even a stopped clock is right twice a day.  Following up on the second story heremeet Davide Piffer.

Emphasis added:

Davide Piffer is an Italian (Sallis note: “Davide Piffer” – Italian?) parapsychologist crank who claims to have psychic powers, including precognition, ESP and psychokinesis.

That’s who Amren believes is a viable commentator on racial science.  As I always say – HBD makes you stupid.

He is currently a PhD student in Psychology at Ben Gurion University of the Negev.

I’m shocked – shocked I say! – that an IQ-obsessed HBDer whose work ultimately promotes intra-European division is a PhD student in Israel.  Israel!  

These guys aren’t even attempting to hide their agenda.  And where are the WN 1.0 guys on this?  Strom?  Come on, Kevin, instead of your last contribution (the second one described here), how about a full-throated attack against the Jewish-Asian HBD cult?  A few comments here and there over the years do not suffice.  Will all the remaining WN 1.0ers out there let HBD wreck whatever is left of racial activism, after the damage already done by the Alt Right?  Does Ted Sallis have to be the only person (and not a WN 1.0er at that) on the Far Right who speaks out against HBD the same as I (very presciently, by the way) spoke out against the Alt Right contagion?

More shocking information:

Piffer is a research fellow of the Ulster Institute for Social Research a racist institute founded by Richard Lynn…

Surprise!  By golly, he also promotes Lynn, and Lynn’s discredited work. Who would have ever guessed?


Refuting Piffer.  Read this, emphasis added:

Think what happens e.g. in Dunkel et al (2019) test. They use PGS from Lee et al (2018), where the prediction test sample includes White Americans of European descent and a part of them (1% in the HRS sample) are Ashkenazi Jews. Dunkel makes just as Piffer, just as described above. US Ashkenazi Jews have an average IQ of 110 and US White Christians have an IQ of 100. The predictor can usually tell that if a person is a Jew from SNPs, as these populations are genetically different. To a Jew it gives the score 110, to a Christian it gives 100. This happens in any sample with White Americans. It does not need to be the test sample. The weights of the predictor are set so that when summed over a subpopulation it works as a predictor of the subpopulation and gives the subpopulation average as the prediction. Consequently, this predictor gives US Ashkenazi Jews a very high PGS score. It is built that way. This has nothing to do with the real influence of the SNPs to educational achievement. This result comes merely from the facts that the average IQs of these two subpopulations differ and that the genes of the subpopulations are different enough for the predictor to detect to what subpopulation a person belongs to.

Did you get it? Piffer’s, and Dunkel et al’s, correlation is a mathematical consequence of the way the PGS is created. It is not any research result. It does not prove anything of the importance of genes to IQ. It is similar to a case where you put a stone in your pocket and later find it, or where you, at some less obvious step multiply your number by three and at the end show, look, it is divisible by three. Of course there is a correlation between the country PGS score and the country average IQ, because the country average IQ highly correlates with country average educational achievement, and you created a predictor which should give a linear correlation between country PGS and country educational achievements.

Some people are impressed that Piffer’s results repeat in each test. Of course they must repeat. The reason there is the correlation is a mathematical identity. It must always repeat, but it does not mean anything. You would get the correlation even if the SNPs had no influence to the property P.

The problem clearly is in Dunkel et al (2019) as they compare two subpopulations, which have different genes and different IQs, and these two subpopulations were both in the prediction sample. This study must therefore be discarded. It does not matter that Jews were only one percent: the PGS score for them comes from this one percent. Piffer’s earlier papers have an IQ gradient in Europe. It seems that the prediction sample had multiple subpopulations from Europe. This is wrong. The last paper of Piffer does not show this North-South IQ gradient in Europe, because the sample was made from Americans of European origins. As they all live in similar circumstances in the USA, there is no IQ gradient. This naturally shows that Piffer’s earlier papers were incorrect because of the prediction sample. The new paper is also incorrect: Piffer includes Ashkenazi Jews, which belonged as a subsample to the prediction sample.

Again, this is the sort of pseudoscience peddled by Amren, and by other “movement” promoters of HBD like Greg Johnson.  You may try and excuse them by saying that, not being STEM folks, they have been misled by HBD pseudoscientific nitwits. But, alas, all these “race realists” and “philosophers” and others have been warned repeatedly about HBD, including by me at this blog, so they have no excuse.  Because HBD fits in with the narrative they push, they accept it.  And, yes, I openly admit to drinking the HBD Kool-Aid back when I was interviewed by Griffin and said some positive things about the frauds. Back then, I just accepted it as part of “movement” conformity, but once I started questioning “movement” dogma, I applied the scientific method to critically evaluate HBD.  It’s a fraud. And worse, it is an anti-White fraud.


Note: As they all live in similar circumstances in the USA, there is no IQ gradient.


That is what I call “the America test.” How do groups perform in the same environment – the USA (with its mixed population)?   Yes, there are group differences in IQ and achievement (of the latter, for Jews and Asians, some of that is due to ethnocentrism), but many supposed intra-European differences do not seem to be replicated in America. The HBD explanation typically is “selective immigration”- but if they really believe that, then they and their followers should stop attempting to apply their (likely wrong) European data to European-Americans.
